Yeah, I imagine that will be a hotly contested auction. 8) What pisses me off though is the bit at the end:

On Wednesday, Rowling and the makers of the Harry Potter movies filed a lawsuit against RDR Books, a small U.S. publisher that plans to bring out a companion volume based on the Harry Potter Lexicon fan Web site.

Rowling has said she plans to produce her own encyclopedia of the wizarding world and says the book would infringe on her intellectual property rights.

I can't begin to count how many different Tolkien related encyclopedias, atlases, and other reference works I own. They were all done by different publishers. Why the hell does J.K. Rowling need exclusive rights to all reference works for Harry Potter? As near as I can tell, the only thing they're guilty of is beating her to the punch. :lol:

It's probably going to go for at least a cool million.
